Taped 19...

I’m going to do something that hasn’t been done here in nearly seven months. Nope, not since December 17. It’s Taped! Number 19! 

Honestly, though, it’s taken that long for me to throw together something worthy of a post. 20 somethings, more specifically. 

What I’ve got here combines some trades, some purchases, and some gifts. Here goes...

FDC40D5C-5127-4FE6-A10E-998F10EED9B3

Batch 1: Social Distortion Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, The Clash London Calling, Tom Perry and the Heartbreakers Damn the Torpedoes, A-ha Scoundrel Days, The Back to the Future soundtrack, the Singles soundtrack, Hüsker Dü Zen Arcade, Bob Dylan Blood on the Tracks, the Until the End of the World soundtrack, and Billboard’s Top Rock ‘n’ Roll Hits: 1957.

Batch 2: Cracker Kerosene Hat, Mother Love Bone Apple, Jeff Buckley Grace, Jesus Jones Doubt, Alanis Morissette Jagged Little Pill, Soundgarden Superunknown, The Urge Overkill Stull EP, Sheryl Crow Tuesday Night Music Club, The Cranberries No Need to Argue, and Catherine Wheel Happy Days

There’s some really good stuff here. A handful of them  are grail albums in my collection.

Some of them sound really good like Buckley, Dylan, Urge, Soundgarden, Social Distortion, and Sheryl Crow

Unfortunately not all of them sound quite so great. The BTTF soundtrack is pretty shot. So is London Calling. Petty could sound better, too. But such is the expectation with magnetic audio. Especially when they’re 30+ years old. 

I expect it will be a while before I write another Taped post. My purchases, as I’ve noted, have really slowed down. I’m seeking only the stuff I really really want. Here’s a revision of that list linked above:

  • David Bowie - Hunky Dory
  • Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced?, Axis: Bold As Love, and Electric Ladyland
  • Megadeth - Countdown to Extinction 
  • Public Enemy - He Got Game Soundtrack
  • Rage Against the Machine - RATM, Battle of Los Angeles, and Evil Empire
  • Sugar - Copper Blue 
  • Tool - Undertow 
  • A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders 
  • Urge Overkill - Saturation
  • Wargames - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

It’s always fun to shop for these. Just not during a pandemic.
